7-20-4 Classic Churchill Cigar



7 20 4 Classic Cigars are a superior reproduction of an old time honored stogie brand. Producer Kurt A. Kendall has always been nostalgic when it comes to old smoking collectibles. With this admiration and the experience he had acquired in the tobacco industry, he decided to recreate this fine smoke that was once manufactured by the great R.G. Sullivan. With this step, the 7 20 4 Classic Cigar line was born. From 1875 to 1963, R.G. Sullivan and his Manchester, NH based manufacturing company were the largest sellers of the ten cent smoke. That company made as much as 54 million each year. His success greatly inspired cigar shop owner Kurt A. Kendall to acquire the historic trademark and bring back an old favorite. The name itself is in honor of the 724 Elm Street address where the original brand was once produced.



7 20 4 Classic Cigars are full bodied sticks created in Honduras with great similarity to that inspirational brand. From the exterior to the tobacco inside it has been said that Kendall did a remarkable job in the recreation process. The dark brown wrapper sports a unique band with artwork similar to that on the original smoke. While Sullivan’s brand contained a Havana blend filler, this modern counterpart was re-mixed on the inside. Kendall utilized a variety of distinct fillers from Honduras, Mexico, Columbia, and Nicaragua. In addition, the binder is of Costa Rican decent while the wrapper is a Brazilian Mata Fina. A few of its sizes are made with a distinctive pigtail cap at the top. The 7 20 4 Classic Cigar is available in a wide range of sizes including the Corona 5 5/8 x 46, Churchill 7 x 48, Dog Walker 4 ¼ x 40, Gagger 6 x 60, Gran Toro 6 ½ x 55, Londres 5 x 40, Robusto 5 x 50 and the Torpedo 6 1/8 x 52. Each gauge is presented in a reasonably priced box of 20.



Many smokers from the beginner to the true connoisseur have lit up this fine smoke and given it rave reviews. The Corona was a favorite, for many, from beginning to end. Pre-lit, it was said to be firm in the hand with a sweet and earthy aroma. Once the cigar lighter had done its effortless job, the draw was described as ideal while the burn was nice and even. The flavors were in abundance throughout. Right from the start, the first third was said to bring out a woodsy flavor with undertones of spice and a warm mocha. During the second third the coffee flavor intensified while a creamy yet bitter taste was said to be introduced. One satisfied reviewer mentioned that the subtle notes of lumber and spice remained present in the background. In the home stretch, the final third began with the already present creamy sweetness. The spiciness was accompanied by a rich cocoa flavor in the end. Numerous smokers enjoying this stick mentioned that no re-lighting was found to be necessary. The ash was a pristine white shade and held strong throughout the smoke.



As many of those experiencing this fine line-up noted, 7 20 4 Classic Cigars are superior, yet affordable stogies. Backed by a deep history and ongoing admiration for a master of the industry, Kurt A. Kendall achieved a reminiscent brand with its own originality.
